I’ll definitely fight him again because he can provide me with what I need to progress, which is tough rounds,” said Joshua.

“Kevin Johnson and Denis Bakhtov were supposed to give me rounds, but it was Whyte who actually did it, so why not use him again?

“There’s venom – I’m a cool person but he can throw that off because I want to hurt him and get him out of there”

“He’s the perfect opponent for me. I learned more against Whyte than I did in all 14 of my previous fights. I enjoyed it, it was a good fight.” Joshua said.

“I’ve always said it’s hard to jump to world level after two years. Everyone has high expectations, but people need to understand that it takes time. That was a fight that I needed,” Joshua added.

According to Anthony Joshua he is ready to face newly crowned heavyweight champion of the world, Tyson Fury who holds both the WBA and WBO titles.
